My Ballard reader Ryan emailed in to let us know that a package thief is once again on the loose in our neighborhood. As many readers will remember, our neighborhood was hit hard by package theives around the holiday season last year.
Last night, Ryan captured footage on his home security system of a woman stealing a package from the front porch of his home on the corner of NW 75th St and Dibble Ave NW. Reportedly the woman has waist-length hair and was driving a green early 90s Subaru Legacy. Ryan has reported the incident to the SPD.
With the potential for an increase in package theft in mind, it is important to be on the lookout for others in the community. When ordering online attempt to send the packages to your work location or to somewhere where people will be present to receive the package.
Alternatively, if you are ordering from Amazon they offer a secure Amazon Locker service where packages can be picked up from lockers at various locations around Seattle including at the Ballard 7 Eleven (1550 NW Market St). The service has no extra charge and provides additional security for your packages.
If you have experienced package theft at your home in Ballard let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
